Burnham on Ed Balls 'nightmare' claim in Labour email

Andy Burnham said the Labour front bench was a "united team" and he could not remember his party "as united as it is today".

He spoke to Andrew Neil about a leaked email in the Mail on Sunday, where an Ed Miliband aide described Ed Balls as a "nightmare".

But the shadow health secretary said Mr Balls was a "very good friend", and claimed the media coverage of the claim was "scraping the barrel."
